About Bivik Shah:

Dr. Bivik Shah started the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, serving Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, because he wanted to create an environment in a private practice setting that left every patient satisfied and comfortable. He strives to make his patients feel cared for and important as they attempt to meet each and every medical and personal need. 

Dr. Shah grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He earned an electrical engineering degree from the University of Michigan before returning to Ohio to attend medical school at Ohio State University. Dr. Shah later joined the faculty of Ohio State University, where he was responsible for performing surgery on some of the city's most complicated burn and reconstruction cases.

Dr. Shah is actively involved in Operation Smile, which provides voluntary care to children around the world and in the United States who are born with facial deformities. Dr. Shah has been on four separate Operation Smile missions, visiting Thailand, India, Honduras, and Bolivia to provide care to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. During the Operation Smile missions, which last for one or two weeks, Dr. Shah, and fellow volunteers operate for charity on about 100-150 children, providing them with new smiles and a renewed hope for the future.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Burn Association, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Columbus Medical Association.

Bivik Shah, MD Reviews (512)


The entire staff was very personal with me. I felt at ease and heard.

Breast Augmentation

They were professional, quick, and their facility was very clean.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was warm and friendly. They answered all of my questions. They were very personable which made me feel comfortable.

Breast Augmentation

My questions were thoroughly answered. My patient coordinator, Julia, was and continues to remain highly involved with my plan of care. I was put at ease with every concern I had. Dr. Shah gives his honest opinion on the sizing of implants he feels would best fit my frame. I had many concerns throughout the entire process and Dr. Shah made himself available to facetime with me to ease my concerns. Everyone remained professional throughout the entire experience.

Tummy Tuck

Very satisfied with all the nurses and doctor, all very kind and friendly. I am very excited for my procedure.

Body Lift

Dr. Shah was attentive, patient, knowledgeable, and kind. He never made me feel uncomfortable, even though the situation is one in which feeling bad about your body is highly likely. He never made me feel rushed or like my questions and concerns were routine to him (although they likely were). Dr. Shah’s staff was also very easy to deal with and his office ensures the comfort of each potential patient. Most importantly, Dr. Shah started each conversation by asking me about my expectations and my comfort and never once pressured me to make a decision or agree to work that I was not comfortable with.

Breast Augmentation

The staff here are all amazing! So caring, kind, and comforting. My experience was great and Dr. Shah does incredible work. So satisfied with my results and couldn't be happier! Thank you so much to everyone at Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery. I definitely will refer others your way! I loved how comfortable everyone made me feel! I was really nervous because I have never been put under anesthesia but everyone made me feel safe and rest reassured! Thank you!


Dr. Shah is thorough, he explains every aspect of surgery. He makes sure patients understand procedures benefits and risks. Dr. Shah is supportive, understanding and also realistic when explaining patient outcomes.


Dr Shah and his entire staff were amazing. He made me feel incredibly comfortable the second I stepped foot in his office. I can’t wait for my next procedure

Eyelid Surgery

The entire experience has been awesome. My bags under my eyes are gone and my sagging chin no longer sags! I've been treated with great care and respect throughout the whole process. The follow up has been excellent. I always have questions and everyone has been patient with me!


I've been seeing Cathy for micro planing/microdermabrasion for a couple of years now. She is very professional and a perfectionist in her work. She makes great recommendations regarding products. She is always on time.


Staff was great, Cathy is excellent and easy to talk to, and my results were fantastic.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Shah seems incredibly knowledgeable, and was more than happy to spend as much time as was needed answering all of my questions! I felt very comfortable during the consult and am very confident in the choice I made in picking him as my surgeon. I will hopefully be scheduling my procedure here soon.

Tummy Tuck

I think the doctor was very knowledgeable and he answered all of my questions. The other office staff were professional and kind. I felt very comfortable and will schedule my surgery after I feel a little more confident about what’s going on with the COVID issues.

Tummy Tuck

[Highly satisfied because of ] the timeliness of the appointment overall.


Everyone was very attentive and very nice!!! This is a family that cares about what you want and gives you the best option on how to attain it! Dr. Shah is someone you can trust for your cosmetics needs!


Dr. Shah is very nice. I was very impressed with his knowledge. He is so sweet and easy to talk to. All of the nurses and aides that I dealt with including the beautiful girl at the front desk were all very kind and helpful. I was nervous and everyone made me feel comfortable. Everyone in the office is so gorgeous and sweet!

Breast Augmentation

I have always wanted a BA since I was probably 15. I did plenty of research since 15 until now 28, I am also a perfectionist so of course it took me FOREVER to settle on a doctor. After meeting Dr. Bivik Shah, I felt confident in my decision with him because of his honesty on the pros, cons and what to expect. I had soooo many pictures to show, things I wanted, things I didn't want and he was very patient with me. I went with 500cc High Profile Under the Muscle and let me tell you.....AMAZING RESULTS. I don't think I have ever touched my boobs this much or stared at them lol. I have gotten soo many compliments on them already at 2 months in. My cleavage is amazing, my scars are amazing, they are squishy, they bounce. Its still winter here at my location so I have not had the chance to really show out with them but when summer comes...Boobs out all summer! Plus my boyfriend loves them. Big enough to show out and about, small enough to cover up at work. They are Perfect!!! Thank you Dr. Bivik Shah for realizing I am a crazy perfectionist and telling me to relax, you will look perfect. You are a amazing doctor, I really can't thank you enough. Highly Recommended :)

Brow Lift

The staff was so professional and made me feel safe the entire time.


[Single best thing is...] I'm shocked at how my results look. I've heard many good things about Dr. Shah around Columbus, but seeing first hand how amazing he is completely floored me. I have the figure I've always wanted, even after a baby. Dr. Shah did an amazing job at explaining what to expect with the procedure that I moved forward with. Not only do I feel extremely confident in my body now but I've gotten so many compliments from complete strangers!! He's an amazing surgeon!
